LIBRARY AMNESTY: Monday, November 20, 2017 - Thursday, December 14, 2017
All existing library fines will be waived if you bring canned/boxed food items in
place of money for your fines. This also includes materials currently checked out
that will be late when returned. The exchange will be one canned/boxed food item in
place of each dollar owed. If your fine is less than $1.00, the exchange is still
one canned/boxed food item. Donations will go to the Mission Carthage food bank to
help supply Christmas baskets.
Information is provided through a variety of formats. You will find print and electronic books, newspapers, magazines, journals, archival items, reserve items, reference works, movies, computers, printers, Wi-Fi, and copiers.
Your library is proud to be a member of TexShare, a program offered and supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. This program allows us to offer interlibrary loan and library card service to other Texas libraries. We also provide instruction and assistance with using the library’s resources, monthly gallery exhibits, and lunchbox lectures through the year.
The library provides both study spaces and social spaces. There are 6 study rooms, 2 conference rooms, a computer classroom, leisurely reading areas, study tables, and an open computer lab.
